Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse

| October 3, 2012

Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse is an hour’s worth of Katt Williams’ acerbic comedy with him taking stabs at President Obama, who is just another (insert “N” word here) as far as Williams is concerned. He submits that white America also forgot that Obama is biracial, so when they call for him to react like a black man standing on the street corner, this just won’t work.

He surmised that Obama is too reserved to get real angry and boisterous, and that America really doesn’t want to see First Lady Michelle Obama wearing flip-flops. He does suggest that Obama missed a great opportunity and that black people are just sitting waiting to hear him say one word to them as a whole. He illustrates that if only Obama had said something, inner cities would have had a clean up day, where no one would have dared to leave trash anywhere—simply because Obama had proclaimed the day.

Williams also brings black relationships to the forefront, as well as religion and the demise of Michael Jackson. His take on religion, where he advises even atheists to find some kind of god to worship was surprising to me. He offers that people who worship Budda—whom he describes as a big, fat man in a diaper—must really be crazy.

Williams discusses his legal troubles in this concert that was taped December 31, 2011, at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, before 7,000 visibly excited fans. He says the newspapers had stated that he was getting into trouble back and forth, but he claims that no one ever saw him going into a courtroom to defend himself.

I don’t particularly like Williams as a comedian, but this DVD was hilarious. He had my side splitting, even though I get so bored and irritated with the constant use of the “N” word.

Born and raised in Ohio, Williams is known around the country for his animated, physical performances, quick wit and eclectic hairstyles. He began his career as a teen and quickly discovered his gift for making people laugh.

Inspired by comic greats Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle (whom he calls the “Malcolm X of comedy”), Williams has made his mark in Hollywood for the past 10 years on stage and in film and television.

Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse is available now on DVD and contains an animated version of a segment of Williams’ DVD. Visit http://us.eonefilms.com/home-entertainment
